This software uses your PC to interface with your geiger counter and send data to radmon.org
It can connect your your geiger counter via serial type USB adaptor and also by audio sampling of incoming pulses.

<Please help me out here! If you'd like to write a small section on configuring RadLog, please post and I'll edit it in. If you had issues with your particular geiger counter but got it working, please let us know the settings!>

Setting up a geiger counter connected by USB, e.g. MyGeiger, BroHogan and NetIO counters

Most geiger counters that connect by USB do so by emulating a serial COM port. Go to Device Manager>Ports then disconnect/reconnect your counter. The COM port that changes is your counter.
A lot of geiger counters use the CP2103 Usb to Serial IC. You need to install the drivers from the manufacturers website.

Windows 10
Close down RadLog and disconnect your counter.
Install https://www.silabs.com/documents/public/software/CP210x_Windows_Drivers.zip
Reconnect your counter and start RadLog.

Windows XP-8.1
These used to work automatically. Can someone check this?

RadLog
Go to Settings tab. Select 'Kit with USB/TTL serial interface'
Select 'MyGeiger, BroHogan and NetIO' for the Format.
Early MyGeigers run at 2400 baud. Later ones run at 9600, BroHogan and NetIO run at 9600 baud. Choose one.
Click the 'Start' button on the bottom right hand side and wait for approximately one minute. If the settings and drivers are working correct, you will see data!

Setting up RadLog in a Windows 10 VM (linux KVM) for serial port type counters

Install the silabs CP210x drivers on the Windows 10 VM
https://www.silabs.com/documents/public/software/CP210x_Windows_Drivers.zip
Go to virt-manager, vm settings
Click Add Hardware and select USB Passthrough. Select the CP210x USB device
The new COM port should come up as COM3.

If only COM1 is available. Remove the USB passthrough and add it again in virt-manager. Success will show a COM3 or above in Device Manager and the COM port list after a refresh in RadLog.
